[SOHH highlights a hot record on Tuesdays and offers a behind-the-scenes look at the track in Singled Out. After New York producer Omen decoded Beyoncé's "Mine" anthem, Rostrum Records newcomer Vali breaks down her "When The Rain Goes" music video.]
YouTube Space actually came through and shot the music video for "When The Rain Goes" for free. They really liked the song and they had this choreographer they worked with named Jasmine Meakin and she's from Australia.
They literally reached out to me and they were like, "Do you want to shoot this music video for free at the YouTube Sound Space and I was like, "Yeah, of course!" And they wanted to specifically do, "When The Rain Goes" and so I had to learn the choreography in a half hour and they just shot it.
This music video was very last-minute put together and I literally had my videographer as one of the dance members in the music video because I didn't have enough time to cast everybody. So it was a very last-minute thing but it was a really awesome experience. I thought it was really cool they thought to reach out and ask me.
It wasn't really a planned out video like my others with a storyboard, this one was just about learning the dances and performing it.
I think the choreography reached out to us and she liked the song.
I honestly didn't know what to expect. I got to the shoot and I thought it was just going to be a dance class and they were gonna shoot it there but they had this entire sound stage. I was a little bit nervous, I'm not gonna lie. But I'm excited with how it came out especially with it being last-minute.
